This Excruciating Business of Food (And God's Hope Concerning It)

"This excruciating business of food..."

That was the statement, uttered by legendary writer, Virginia Woolf's husband concerning her disordered eating issues.

In a recent article, Emma Woolf explores the eating disorder tendencies of her famous great aunt, including observations and statements from a concerned Leonard over his troubled wife:

"...he did not call his wife anorexic, but said 'there was always something strange, something slightly irrational in her attitude towards food...'"

When I read the article, I thought of my husband. How many times did he, in fact, echo that same frustrated, baffled sentiment about my behavior? I write about our relationship in my book, "Thin Enough: My Spiritual Journey Through the Living Death of an Eating Disorder."
